Rules that must be followed for installation of baths

Installing the bath is included in the basic plumbing work requires the use of skilled craftsmen, as any assembly defects complicate the operation of the bath and can be a source of leakage. Installation of all types of baths done under the general scheme, with the exception of technical nuances.

General bath installation circuit includes overlapping feed water and removal of the old bath (if present), installation elements flow, fixed bearing carcass, assembling and leveling bath, connecting the drain to the riser and checking sealing bath, for which it is filled first with cold and then with hot water. Mounting any bath is performed with a bias towards the outlet opening, wherein the bottom of the bath should be at a distance of 145 mm from the floor.

When correctly executed the bead mounting baths it should be parallel to the floor and the legs provide maximum stability. Along with this, the installation of the bath involves the equalizer unit of electric potential to prevent the destruction of people by static electricity. To this end, the equalizer is attached to one side of the bath on the tide and the other is connected to a water pipe or grounded.

Installation of steel bath starts with the installation of a floor trap (plastic or iron) with overflow and release. Then, with the help of bilateral soft labels attached to the bottom of the bath adjustable feet. Bath with attached legs give way to allow entry of the outlet pipe of the siphon into the sewer pipe. Steel bath rather light and for additional stability under the bottom of the bath can be laid layer of brick or foam and seal the slit assembly foam, filling the bathtub with water to foam after expansion do not lift above the bath supports.

Brick or foam concrete blocks can be used to improve the steel bath insulation, laying a layer of outside board bath with access to a sewerage system, as you may need it cleaning. In addition, for acoustic and thermal insulation of steel baths are often placed in boxes with sand, and then the installer.

Installation of acrylic bathtubs requires careful handling - in the bath can remain scratches and chips, so the bath installation should be done gently and carefully. Before installation, acrylic bathtubs and its inverted into the existing recess flaking spread tow, and then poured concrete with the addition of waterglass. After preparing the base bath is inverted and set, and the hydraulic valve is connected to the sewer system. The mixer can be built into a wall or installed on board acrylic baths at any distance from the hand to make it convenient to adjust the water pressure.

Modern manufacturers offer a bath of different geometric shapes: rectangular, square, angular and oval. Bath custom sizes are mounted on a steel frame with adjustable feet, and usually come with a built-in cascaded mixers. Installation of irregularly shaped bath has its own characteristics, in particular, the installation of a corner bath requires additional work of laying pipes from the sink to the total riser. Installing the bath is performed with a bias towards the drain.

Of all the works performed installation of the hot tub is considered the most difficult, and even when the bath transport required to comply with certain rules to the installation site. In the process of hot tub installation it can not turn in order to avoid damage to the engine and hydro systems. Whirlpool baths come complete with frame and drain the system, and after checking all of its elements (motor, pump) from a specialist is required to connect to the bath water and electrical conductive via latent cable.

Switchboard is mounted outside the bathroom - usually behind a partition. To install the hot tub must be grounded electrical equipment, as these baths are equipped with an electric motor! To improve the performance of decorative bath can set the screen, but it will need to provide access to the siphon and the motor for maintenance.
The amount of additional installation work is determined not only the type of bath, but also a place of its installation.

Installation of baths, performed back to back against the wall, requires a mandatory seal the edges. For this purpose, the gap formed between the tub and the wall boards, cement obscure then stained with white paint. If there are large gaps need to lay between the bath and the wall of the plastic plate or layer of bricks and then seal the gap.

If the installation of the bath is carried out in the repair process, the gap with the sealing layer overlap tiling. Installation of steel or acrylic bath in the middle of the bathroom, accordingly, does not involve extra work to seal the seams.
